I was reading an article about Dennis Erickson taking the S.F. job. And I stumbled across this paragraph. "Erickson turned down job offers from LSU and USC and turned back overtures from NFL teams. He seemed delighted to be in Corvallis, where the media wattage might power a child's flashlight when compared to the halogens trained upon his previous two stops, the University of Miami and the Seattle Seahawks." Did LSU offer him a job before Saban. Man did he do us a favor... If this is true (Which I doubt since this is the same rag ESPN that mentions Sabans job for every job opening in sports and lies about his intentions) But if this is true, the big guy upstairs was looking out for us, we got probably one of the top 3 coaches in the nation in Saban. Erickson would not have made it down here. Anyway, does anyone know anything about this. I thought Saban was our leading candidate from the get-go.
